The shadows have to be exposed to perfection, otherwise they can be ugly! I don't regard this camera as a good low light street shooter.

Agreed, shadow noise is problem with this sensor (also on GF-1/2, etc.). But if your exposure is good (and you shoot in Natural or Muted) it is OK. Under-expose at all and you will have shadow noise.

fortunately the Oly metering (and the avialalblity of all the different modes) is very good.
